Lil Durk is back again with a new cut called “On Your Mind,” an expectedly emotional reflection on his circumstances. It’s part of what makes Durk such a compelling narrator, lending credibility to his status as “The Voice.”
On that note, “On Your Mind” captures the complexities of the rapper’s psyche, as he struggles to balance the two worlds he inhabits.
“I made this before the Grammy’s, If I win a Grammy, I’ma take it to the trenches, to the family,” he raps, over the melancholic piano. “Might sip some lean out and bein fancy / Knowin’ I ain’t ‘posed to be alive, sadly.”
